Roon Core_ headless QNAP TVS-671. New device only running Roon core and holding music files. Wired Gb to network. 16GB RAM, 2 x ssd drives for core - 250 GB, 4 x WD Gold drive for music - 8TB). V1.2B165 64bit Stable
Roon Remote: MS Surface Pro Windows 10 Pro, 16GB RAM, 500GB ssd. V1.2B168 64bit Stable.
DAC: FiiO USB
Windows Firewall OFF
ISSUE: there are NO local audio devices listed in Roon Settings / Audio. None, nada - do not ask anything about zones, config because there is nothing to config. No Windows local soundcard, audio device etc.
Audio device AND DAC work within Windows. I can play audio from local drive, browsers, various steaming services. ALL WIndows audio capabilities are 100% fine - no issues.
complete re-installation of Roon remote. Uninstalled programs AND setting/databases - both one at a time and then together.
complete re-install of Roon Core, including re-formatting ALL drives.
at each step, all devices were rebooted.
disconnecting from remote, reboot remote, re-connect core
both disable and remove watched folders in remote - with remote reboots in between.
With all the above, have tried with Surface Pro connected both wireless and hard wired to network.
I have tried several dozen combinations of things
I have read every post on Community site related to hardware
Nothing I have done with get Roon Remote to show any local audio devices.
I am 50+ years old and consider myself an audiophile
I own a computer company (support) - I have forgotten more about networks and computers than most people know - that is - I REALLY have tried to figure this out before posting ha ha.
I hate to ask, but I need a wee bit of assistance …
